New Delhi (India), July 10:  In the heartland of India, where the sacred rivers Ganga, Yamuna, and Saraswati converge, lies Prayagraj – a city steeped in spirituality and heritage. It is here that the Sangam Challengers, representing this holy city, embark on a journey that blends tradition with modern sportsmanship in the inaugural Uttar Pradesh Kabaddi League (UPKL).

The name ‘Sangam Challengers‘ pays homage to the divine confluence (Sangam) of the rivers, symbolising unity and convergence – values that resonate deeply within the team’s spirit. Just as the rivers merge to form a powerful force, the Sangam Challengers unite players from diverse backgrounds under one banner, fostering camaraderie and determination.
Founded with a vision to nurture emerging talent, the UPKL serves as a springboard for players aspiring to reach the pinnacle of Kabaddi excellence. Supporting this ambitious journey is Plusgen India Private Limited, a pioneering force in healthcare distribution.
